Ive found them at 2 shops not far from me.

 

Dont pair any internal sound card / transistor amp with these headphones, it's just stupid. 

 

 

Anyway, just go on amazon or wtv, use the sort by price (highest first) feature and buy/claim that you'll buy the most expensive thing that you'll see. That's most likely what you were going to do anyway.

I think its dumb of everyone here to call the OP a troll. He flat out admitted he didn't know about this subject and was just giving his opinion on the gear he bought. Yes he made bad buying decisions but he didn't know any better.

I'll agree with most people here, that Razer headset is garbage. AD700s or AD900s with a Xonar DG will be great. If you want to spend a little more get MMX 300s.

Im pretty sure now Im going to go headphones and a mic, instead of a headset. Just got to sort out a suitable amp / dac for the HD800.

All that matters is that he's happy with his headphones and there's no reason he shouldn't be.

Nice post..+Rep

I cant really tell you about the Do's, I have a limited experience with 1k$+ headphones.

This is the same setup i have, and I am extremely happy with it...But you could have used a little more detail/setup in your opening post. : ) if you have any questions let me know ive had this setup for about 4 months now and i think ive worked out the kinks...

LOL my brain is melting. I think at this point in time ill keep it simple and get the HD800 and the ASUS Xonar Essence One. And if i hear one crackle LOL... Well atleast i can do more researce and find the most suitable DAC/amp for it.


It looks like this is a common setup V200 and the V800 but how many boxes do you want on your desk lol and they look tacky! And they are $2400 for them. 4k on headphones! biggrin.gif
